Nice clean pedicure place

By sakpase - 6 December 2011 34

I need a pedicure. I had an absolutely disgusting experience at a nail salon in Canberra (no attempt to even pretend to clean sharp implements and files between clients, even when the woman next to me had an obvious fungal infection – I walked out) and am hoping that this isn’t the norm in Canberra.

I’m used to places that autoclave metal implements, use new files for every customer, and clean foot baths properly in between clients.

Is there anywhere that’s up to this standard? Woden or Civic preferred, but I’ll travel to Belconnen if necessary!

What’s Your opinion?

Tsk tsk OP. How dare you spend money on yourself! Shame shame…. Far out people…. really??

There is nothing wrong with ‘wanting’ to maintain the look of your feet or hands if you can afford the luxury. Every 3 weeks is quite often, but if I could afford it I would totally do it. Who doesn’t want nice baby soft feet with pretty painted toenails as opposed to rough calloused gross toes poking disgustingly out of really nice shoes?? Sandal weather people. Have some consideration for other people who might catch a glimpse of your feet I say!

I think somebody has mixed up the concept of needs and wants.

I’m not the original poster, but personally, I do need a pedicure regularly. I’m very prone to ingrown toenails that become painfully infected, and frankly, a preventative pedicure is cheaper than a curative podiatrist. I don’t care about the nail polish (sometimes I tell them not to bother, or to just use clear) but I need another person, who can look at my toenails head-on and has the right tools, to attend to them.

These places definitely need to be properly regulated. I had a similar experience when I saw files and other implements being used without being cleaned.

At this moment, I need (very much want, if you’re being pedantic) a pedicure. I would like to have one every three weeks, if I can find a decent place that’s not overpriced. Are you done being condescending now?

No.

I believe most pedicure shops use lowly paid immigrant workers, as Australian women refuse to work in them. The one at Belco Westfield springs to mind.

My kids almost pass out from the fumes every time they walk past that place.

Once one of them vomited in a plastic tree because we stopped outside there for too long.

Did you clean up your childs vomit or leave it there for the lowly paid (possibly) immigrant cleaner to clean up?

Just bite ’em short with your teeth. It’s a good stretch, and think of the money you’ll save!

+1 on that.

We need things like clean water, clean air, food, effective sanitation, employment, loving relationships with our families, freedom from oppression and torture by secret police, freedom from IEDs and incoming fire and a whole bunch of other stuff. Things that most of us in this truly fanstastic country actually have.

Somehow, pedicures don’t feature really highly on the list of things I think we need. Just sayin’.

+1 . Maybe the spray tan isn’t working without the pedicure?

You “need” a pedicure every 3w? I must be doing it wrong…

My grandfather used to cut his nails with the garden clippers, worked fine for him.

I’ve been to Beaute 2 Suit in the City, great place, it was clean and quiet without the normal strong smell. Only paid $60 and worth every cent.

sakpase 4:20 pm 06 Dec 11

Looks great, but $70 is a bit more than I’d like to pay every 3 weeks πŸ™
